Reifer stakes claim with five-for

Social Share

All-rounder Raymon Reifer will be looking to force his way into the West Indies team for the first Test of the historic bio-secure three-match series versus England starting next month.

The left-arm seamer is named in the 14-man squad and already made a great case for selection yesterday after picking up five wickets in 11 balls on Day 2 of the three-day intra-squad match at Old Trafford.

It’s preparation for the opening Test on July 8 at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton, and the 29-year-old snatched the opportunity to impress the selectors, producing a brilliant late spell, taking 5-60 as the team, led by vice-captain Kraigg Brathwaite, finished on top of captain Jason Holder’s side.

The skipper’s squad were 95-2 before Reifer dismissed Holder, Rahkeem Cornwall, Joshua da Silva, Shayne Moseley and Nkrumah Bonner, leaving the team all out for 193 runs in 51.1 overs. (AGB)
